Kyoto

— 6 nights
The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Get outdoors at Nara Park and Shin Satoyama. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Dotombori District (in Dotombori) and Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Nigatsu-do Temple, &more). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Gion, awaken your taste buds at Kyoto Insider Sake Experience, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.
